Vol 1, Ch 1

Hitler was more than just an Authoritarian Personality--He was an original, a prototype of the most violent extreme.
Hitler was more than just an Authoritarian Personality, AP. He was himself, a prototype of the most violent extreme, the sociopath without a conscience. Ironically, he defined the AP in his memoir, Mein Kampf, ascribing it to the Jews!

Chapter III:

The institution that is now erroneously called the State generally classifies people only into two groups: citizens and aliens. Citizens are all those who possess full civic rights, either by reason of their birth or by an act of naturalization.

Excerpts From: Mein Kampf: Vol. 1 Ch 6

[Ed Note: Hitler did not invent propaganda; it is as old as Homo sapiens; lying to one's brethren has been identified in the great apes. Hitler just refined it to a degree beyond what his Communists teachers, could.]

AT THE END of November, 1918, I returned to Munich. Again I went to the replacement battalion of my regiment, which was in the hands of 'soldiers' councils.'

Ever since I have been scrutinizing political events, I have taken a tremendous interest in propagandist activity.
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

In the preceding chapter I mentioned the existence of a co-operative union between the German patriotic associations. Here I shall deal briefly with this question.
Causes of Terrorism

There are as many avenues for radicalization as there are terrorists. The closer you can get to the terrorists themselves, the better your chances for understanding them.

Annotated but unabridged.

[FORWARD: By no means is the commentary on this page meant to be taken as simply an indictment of leaders in our age--neither Abu Grhaib nor Guantanamo were equipped with gas chambers. Rather, it is the long view that is important--along with understanding just how fragile the American style of democracy is, and how it might be corrupted. Hitler's more revealing statements are in red.]

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

If the principal duty of the National Socialist People's State be to educate and promote the existence of those who are the material out of which the State is formed, it will not be sufficient to promote those racial elements as such, educate them and finally train them for practical life, but the State must also adapt its own organization to meet the demands of this task.

It is then possible that such a people will a second time, or even more often in the course of its history, come into contact with the race of those who once brought it culture, and the memory of former encounters will not necessarily be present.

So it is absolutely wrong to infer any ideal sense of sacrifice in the Jews from the fact that they stand together in struggle, or, better expressed, in the plundering of their fellow men.
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

Owing to the rapid growth of the movement, in 1922 we felt compelled to take a definite stand on a question which has not been fully solved even yet.
Why do certain societies, including ours, have an instinct for stirring up conditions leading to violence? Not all do. Why such dramatic differences?
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

The People's State, which I have tried to sketch in general outline, will not become a reality in virtue of the simple fact that we know the indispensable conditions of its existence. It does not suffice to know what aspect such a State would present.

Now, it goes without saying, he can really make use of his position for his own advancement.

The year 1921 was specially important for me from many points of view.

When I entered the German Labor Party I at once took charge of the propaganda, believing this branch to be far the most important for the time being.

ONE DAY I received orders from my headquarters to find out what was behind an apparently political organization which was planning to hold a meeting within the next few days under the name of 'German Workers' Party'--with Gottfried Feder as one of the speakers.

The echoes of our first great meeting, in the banquet hall of the Hofbruhaus on February 24th, 1920, had not yet died away when we began preparations for our next meeting.

America, one of the first to revolt against the British Crown, now wears the crown. Our leaders seem not to realize how heavy that burden can be. Much less do they seem to be aware of their own roots and how it feels to be exploited as our founding fathers were in organizing the Boston Tea Party.
Adolf Hitler

Volume One - A Reckoning

As A YOUNG SCAMP in my wild years, nothing had so grieved me as having been born at a time which obviously erected its Halls of Fame only to shopkeepers and government officials.
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - A Reckoning

THE ARMISTICE of November, 1918, ushered in a policy which in all human probability was bound to lead gradually to total submission.
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

In the winter of 1919, and still more in the spring and summer of 1920, the young Party felt bound to take up a definite stand on a question which already had become quite serious during the War.
by Adolf Hitler

Volume One - A Reckoning

There are two reasons which induce me to submit to a special examination the relation of Germany to Russia: Here perhaps we are dealing with the most decisive concern of all German foreign affairs; and this question is also the touchstone for the political capacity of the young National Socialist movements to think clearly and to act correctly.
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

In 1919-20 and also in 1921 I attended some of the bourgeois meetings. Invariably I had the same feeling towards these as towards the compulsory dose of castor oil in my boyhood days. It just had to be taken because it was good for one: but it certainly tasted unpleasant.
Adolf Hitler

Volume One - A Reckoning

IN THE SPRING of 1912 I came at last to Munich. The city itself was as familiar to me as if I had lived for years within its walls.
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

The erratic manner in which the foreign affairs of the Reich were conducted was due to a lack of sound guiding principles for the formation of practical and useful alliances. Not only was this state of affairs continued after the Revolution, but it became even worse.
Editorial

What follows is as factual as we can make it. We regret to report certain associations between past and present practices of governance. If the shoe fits, we must wear it, at least for the time it will take to replace winner-take-all politics with statesmanship.
"We're never going to be able to solve the problem of terrorism unless we understand and try to deal with some of the reasons that turn particularly young, impressionable people to support extremist organizations."

THERE are some truths which are so obvious that for this very reason they are not seen or at least not recognized by ordinary people.
Adolf Hitler

Volume Two - The National Socialist Movement

The strength of the old state rested on three pillars: the monarchical form of government, the civil service, and the army. The Revolution of 1918 abolished the form of government, dissolved the army and abandoned the civil service to the corruption of party politics.
Adolf Hitler

Volume One - A Reckoning

IF AT THE END of this volume I describe the first period in the development of our movement and briefly discuss a number of questions it raises, my aim is not to give a dissertation on the spiritual aims of the movement.

Chapter II:

By 1920-1921 certain circles belonging to the present outlived bourgeois class accused our movement again and again of taking up a negative attitude towards the modern State.

THE EXTENT of the fall of a body is always measured by the distance between its momentary position and the one it originally occupied.

Our position on Neoconservatism is that it has defined and created a crossroad in American history, a crossroad where brazen partisanship and imperialism have divided our nation as rarely before, and much of the world along with it.

TODAY it is my conviction that in general, aside from cases of unusual talent, a man should not engage in public political activity before his thirtieth year.
